Isn't it better to start this after the majority of people have been vaccinated, but as this wont happen until much later in the year the big companies like Dentsu and JTB must be pressuring the government to restart GOTO travel early. Not smart at all.

How can there be only 5200 tests done on a Friday, a normal workday?
Because to get tested you need to have certain symptons so less tests mean less people with symptoms.
Don't you people get tired of repeating the same things everyday.

New Zealand should just do the same and take her passport away. If they don't want to then they need to be responsible for her.

The number of infected people hospitalized with severe symptoms in Tokyo is 92, down five from Monday
These are the important numbers.

They have no plan hence the silence as they were too slow to order the correct vaccine and now more people will die and businesses go bankrupt because of the Japanese governments incompetence.

Japan should have built on those islands a long time ago when China wasn't so powerful.
Big mistake by them.

Too slow to approve it and they should have started vaccinating already. Also they always talk about the numbers of vaccines they have agreed to buy but not when they will get them.

Great the JP government just found someone to blame for their failure to secure the vaccine !
17 ( +23 / -6 )
How about telling us the true number of the vaccines that Japan will be receiving and when and stop telling us stupid numbers that Japan has secured.

They had nearly a year to prepare for this and chose as usual to not do anything. Time to put some smarter and younger people in charge and retire the old guard.

At least we are starting to learn the truth from Kono that they have no idea when they will start to roll out the vaccine. Shame on the Japanese government for being so slow as this will cost the economy dearly !! Time for a change of government I think.

Them saying this means they know that the vaccines wont be ready for the Olympics so do us all a favor and cancel them now.

At least we know who to blame when they make a mess of rolling out the vaccine. Also this should have started already.

Many complain that people cant get tested but I got my test last week in Shinjuku for only 2900 yen and got the results the next day. It was quick and easy and very busy and I dont think these private clinics get added to the official test numbers. Company is call EPARK and they also have a clinic is Shinbashi.

One law for the elite and another for the rest of us. They throw you in jail here for almost anything and hold you for 28 days but these guys already got preferential treatment and will only get a suspended sentence.

I hope Japan is stockpiling its vaccine orders ready for a mass vaccination when they are finally approved. That would be the smart thing to do but unfortunately Japan is lacking strong leadership.

Japan is too slow to roll out the vaccines so for that reason alone they should cancel the Olympics.

Don't they call this a Puppet with others pulling the strings ?

If Japan had started to do mass vaccinations already like many other countries then I think the Olympics could have gone ahead but as they might only start limited vaccination at the end of February then I think its too late for them to be held. Government only have themselves to blame for this outcome.

So hurry up and approve a vaccine then.

Impeach and ban him from running again. Why do the republicans always let him get away with breaking the law, time to do the right thing then the country can move on and heal.

The biggest expense for many Restaurants in central Tokyo is rent and most landlords have given no support at all. The government should offer them land tax discounts if they offer rent discounts like other countries already do but so far not here.

Takeda hoped to begin clinical trials of the Novavax candidate next month and, upon approval, it would be mass produced at the company's facility in Yamaguchi Prefecture, Imagawa said.
Seems like the Japanese were hoping this one would be the main vaccine used here but they backed the wrong horse and they still might be holding out for this one so that Japan inc. can profit from the virus.

Don't just pick on the bars and restaurants for the lockdown and also get the vaccine out asap then a month might be long enough.
